A recommendation for Heritage Open Days 8 – 11 September: Wanborough Great Barn

With so many potential places to visit during the four days [8-11th September] of Heritage Open Days it’s a difficult to choose where to visit.

Here’s some help with a suggestion. It’s where we visited yesterday – Wanborough Great Barn – and it’s open on Sat 10th & Sun 11th during the Heritage Open Days.

The barn has an interesting 1,000 year history, told through guides and numerous information boards. Always important, we can report that the tea and cake is excellent. Adjacent to the Barn is Wanborough Manor, whose secret role as a training base for SOE agents in WW2 is told in detail. Also, only yards away is the small St Bartholomew’s Church, which too has a 1,000 years of history – more on this later. I hope you might think it’s wort a visit.
